Here's a batch of primary-based presidential polling. In four states tested for Republican preferences -- Texas, Iowa, New Hampshire and Arkansas -- Mike Huckabee makes more than a scratch only in Arkansas, where he leads the ticket with 40 percent of the vote, then McCain at 21 and Giuliani at 12.
And, while searching the invaluable Technorati for presidential blogging, I see the Club for Growth continues to poke at Huckabee, this time over public facilities named in his honor. Also, Huckabee may be gaining some ground with county Republican chairs in Iowa.
